THE WARM UPThis workshop will introduce teachers to drama, what it means in practice and the advantages of using it in a classroom. It will share techniques and activities to energise and focus students as well as building a safe, supportive and creative environment. Participants will have plenty of time to put what they learn into practice!
THE DIRECTORThis workshop will focus on specific drama activities. We will consider the teacher as a Director - how to use role-play, develop line delivery and direct a short piece or poem. It will be an opportunity to learn new things, to develop existing knowledge and to share with others.
THE FUTUREThis workshop will focus on how to integrate drama into the curriculum. We will also look at mini-performances and productions, what is needed to produce these and what areas to focus attention on. We will consider how to use drama as an extra-curricular activity and how to improve performance in speech festivals and other public speaking situations.
